Online MSc International Business marks first wholly online masters to be fully accredited by AMBA

Inspiring and diverse, the Birmingham Business School has achieved yet another ‘global-1st’ for its 100% Online MSc International Business, which has been accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) – one of the most leading authorities on postgraduate business education.

“In its review, AMBA applied a similar level of care, rigor and scrutiny which it normally uses for assessing the accreditation of MBAs. It concluded that the programme is effective in delivering a wholly-online experience that combines both quality with flexibility, to enhance a students' ability to perform at the highest level in in global business,” explains Dr Roshan Boojihawon, Director, Online MSc International Business.

Maximise your potential

Aimed to equip those starting out in their careers with global managerial insight, the programme allows students to gain the contextual knowledge and real-world perspectives to make rapid career progression in a competitive business arena.

Learning online can help to foster a professional astuteness that students can exercise within their working lives:

“Students who have the time to think through what they want to contribute have an understanding that their comments in an online environment are permanent records of their thoughts,” explains Dr Boojihawon.

The programme’s formal recognition from AMBA gives students further ability to mark themselves out to employers looking to recruit driven, internationally-minded professionals. With online students receiving an identical degree certificate as those who study on campus, the Online MSc International Business is producing the next generation of global business managers and future leaders.

“To me, this makes the University of Birmingham a leading provider and institution of choice when it comes to study business at postgraduate level,” concludes Dr Boojihawon.

Accelerate your career

Online MSc International Business graduate, Helena Feibert, acquired a position at global jewellery manufacturer, Pandora, just four months into her studies. Since completing the programme, she has secured a lead role in the same company:

“I wanted to study at a well-ranked university, with proven credentials. I thought the match for Birmingham was great. It was exactly what I wanted to study and the parameters around it fit with my work schedule too,” she explains.

It is the second 100% online programme at the University of Birmingham to achieve this recognition; the Online MBA became the first of its kind to earn AMBA accreditation in 2016.
